      Did you only make your logo as a gif?
      If you made a logo in a proper vector program it should import into Paint without a background.
      But I have to admit I have not used (Microsoft?) Paint since the mid 80s. As in 1980s...

        You could try exporting/save as your logo as a PNG then insert.

              What you are trying to do is not the right way to do it.

                The logo isn't losing transparency because it never had any. Neither the .gif format nor MS paint support actual transparency. The only advice you could possibly get from graphics professionals is to start over using proper tools and methods, but it appears you may not be equipped to do so.

                  Correction, GIFs supports one level of transparency, but only one, unlike PNG which supports 256 levels of transparency. This means no translucency with GIFs, but yes with PNG.

                  But yes, it depends on the program whether or not it can read the transparency formatting in the file.

                      Open the picture with Photoshop or any Adobe photo editing tools or online photo editing tools instead and save the picture to .png to preserver the transparent background.

                        Save the image as png file to maintain the quality of the photo.

                          Hi, here are the easy steps to insert a transparent logo.

                          1) Hide the background layer
                          2) Go to file > Save for web option(Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S(windows shortcut))
                          3) Choose PNG option and click on save
                          4) Now you can insert your transparent logo to an image

                            i think you should make color selection and copy to a new (transparent) layer.
